Program Notes

The arrangement of music from Wagner's Ring Cycle is intended to forma large-scale symphony for a brass and percussion ensemble. The tone of each opera serves the symphonic format quite well, especially the slow and reflective mood of Die Walküre and the scherzo-like Siegfried. All of the music selected from Wagner's operas is place din chronological order and retains its original key.

As a musician who has never performed a Ring Cycle in his career, undertaking this arrangement is the closest I can get to performing some of the best music written for opera.
